Jack Rice, Davis, is the owner/operator of Larabee Ranch, a hay and cattle operation in Humboldt County.  After graduating from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo with an agribusiness degree, he returned to the ranch for several years.  The political and legal challenges facing agriculture encouraged him to attend UC Davis Law School where he earned his law degree, concentrating in environmental and agricultural law. “The oldest tradition of American agriculture is the ability to adapt to the inevitable changes of progress.  I believe the California Rangeland Trust is engaged in this very effort of adaptation by striving to preserve working landscapes.”
